i would want to save my unborn, but would choose me, because i have three kids who i couldnt bear to leave behind. i dont think i could go to the funeral of said child though, the guilt of seeing the sweet baby's face who i chose to die would kill me.

I know who would be attempted to be saved, but I, myself, cannot make that decision.

I have four kids and they are largely dependent on me for education, religion, medication, and security. I'd have to pick myself. All other circumstances I am pro life

If it was my 1st birth it would be my child without hesitation but now that I have 4 children that need their mommy...that would be the longest 30 sec of my life as I struggled with that decision on whether to leave my other children motherless and save the baby OR let the child go and live to be there for my other children. Neither option is without heartache and I pray to God that this is something I NEVER have to experience but if I did I hope He would help me come to the right decision and help me (or my surviving family) cope with the outcome of whatever decision was made :(

Me. I have two other kids who need me. If the situation is that grave, who's to say the unborn child would survive anyway.

Flame away...

Me my son needs his mom, and my husband would choose me too.
We had this discussion when I was pregnant with my son.

I just had a baby and I know I should say me that's the logical thing since I have a 4 year son also but I know for fact in the moment I would say my baby, I also know that If I lost my baby like that I would never be the same ever.

I could never make that decision hypothetically. I have no idea what I would choose. Don't even want to think about it.
